I bought the new Acer Aspire Z 23" screen desktop computer from Best Buy, and rather than buy an extra printer, I thought, why not just purchase a network cable and keep my printer and old computer set up the way they are? I simply added another option. When I want to print from my old computer, I have it all set up under my desk, but when I want to use my new computer, which is on top of the desk beside the printer, instead of diving under the desk to locate the usb port in the dark, I just hook the one on the desk into the back of the printer and unplug the old one while I am using it. Some say, why not use a wireless network? Call me a cave dweller, but I just like the fact that nobody can steal signals through my cables, since we are always being warned about wireless hacking. So, for something this simple, maybe I could have gone wireless, but rather than go through all of the hassle of setting up two computer wireless networks, for now it is the Neanderthal approach - and I trust the quality of the Insignia cable.
